1313: COUGAR CULT wraps! New release schedule!

Legendary Scream Queens Unite for a Cougar Reunion as Veteran Filmmaker David DeCoteau’s Rapid Heart Pictures Introduces New 1313 DVD/VOD film franchise!

Veteran filmmaker David DeCoteau (director of numerous cult classics such as Puppet Master 3, The Brotherhood and many others) has been busy filming his thrilling new “1313” series of sexy DVD/VOD suspense features, and has completed principal photography on 1313: COUGAR CULT, a Rapid Heart Pictures release starring Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer. It’s the 25th year reunion of the three most legendary scream queens in horror movie history; and it’s no surprise that they’ve all turned into cougars!

1313: COUGAR CULT marks the 25th year reunion of DeCoteau with the three premiere leading ladies of the horror genre, who he previously directed in such cult classics as Nightmare Sisters and Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama. It also marks the continuation of Rapid Heart’s thrilling new “1313” series of sexy DVD suspense movies; a series released through the company’s new DVD/VOD distribution company. In this scorching thriller, set to be released in early 2012 on DVD and VOD, three nerdy college guys score the summer job of their dreams, only to discover they've landed in a nightmare; the nightmare being that the three incredible "Cougars" they’ve met have this nasty habit of transforming into actual "Cougars"—painfully sharp teeth and all.
